Favorite Products From My Past
Today's post is about is products from my past. In some cases, it may be something that I really used to like a LOT that I haven't used for a very long time. Jean Nate is one of those. I loved the scent years ago. For quite awhile, actually. I guess I outgrew it or something? Or moved on, I'm not sure which:
Next up: Yardley's English Lavender - I have loved this scent for years! I never did get tired of IT, though - I would happily use it again if I could just find it. (I don't want to pay extra for shipping - I know I could order it online.)
I did pick up one of the vintage bottles in an antiques shop (on the right, below). And there is a teeny bit left in my spray bottle. I guess I just can't bear to use the last of it - I may not find any more:
I like the cologne spray, the soap and the talcum powder. It's all good.
Noxzema Skin Cream. I washed my face with this stuff every day for at least thirty years! I finally switched to something else.
The look of the label has changed over the years:
I didn't like it when they started packaging it in plastic containers, so I found myself a vintage glass Noxzema jar and transferred mine into it for daily use. I even used a small vintage jar to carry some in my travel bag. Now they look pretty with my other little blue glass bottles in the bathroom window.
Do you remember the original Clairol Herbal Essence Shampoo? I used it in high school, and beyond. LOVED it. Honestly, I think I may have only quit using it when it no longer existed in it's original form. I was in love with the scent of it. I just recently discovered that they offer a similar formula here. I'm not interested in paying 14.95 plus shipping for a bottle of shampoo, even though I'd secretly love to try it again.
Yes, I used the creme rinse, too:
I suppose I didn't stray too far- now I use these:
I go through the conditioner pretty fast- WAY faster than the shampoo! My hair was long back in high school, but not nearly as long as it was in this picture:
Since that photo was taken, I have had about 8 inches cut off the length. It had been four years since I had a professional haircut!
(I'm pretty low maintenance.)
It looks MUCH better now.
Next up are three products I started using MANY years ago that I actually still use to this day....
Cover Girl Clean Make-up and Powder:
And Maybelline Great Lash Mascara:
They look a little different now:
I like to say, "When you find a good product, stick with it!"
Works for me.
